Last year’s NBA Draft proved to be historic for the Big Ten. The conference hadn’t seen that many players selected in the first round since 1990. For review, the ’90 Draft incldued: 5th pick – Kendall Gill (Illinois), 9th – Willie Burton (Minnesota), 10th – Rumeal Robinson (Michigan), 13th – Loy Vaught (Michigan), 16th – Terry Mills (Michigan). That comes to a cumulative draft average between the 10th and 11th pick among those five selections. That’s insane.
